Market Drayton, Shrewsbury, Shropshire

Planning restrictions meant that renewable technology would be needed to allow for this new 4 bedroom property situated within picturesque Shropshire countryside and off gas grid.

  • Market Drayton

Project Overview

For our end user it was a simple decision and now they are benefiting from lower running cost and lower carbon emissions.

Project Budget

£9,000.00 including heat meters and 1st year Maintenance.

Estimate payback of approximately 3 years to alternative oil fired heating system.

Project Details

Temperature Control Limited provided the heat loss calculations using the Mitsubishi whole house and room by room calculation MIS3005 v4 which is the approved method by MCS best practice installation and commissioning procedures in order to design and build the heating system.


Project Description

A Mitsubishi Electric Ecodan Air Source Heat Pump PUHZ-W85VHA2 with a 210l pre plumbed cylinder and new FTC5 control was used for heating and hot water of this new self-build.

Heat to the property was a split between UFH to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor with a design flow rate based on weather compensation of 45°C @-2°C ambient and 35°C @+15°C ambient.

Hot water will have a mean temperature of 40°C flow and once a week pasteurisation to 70°C.

Estimated running costs

Figures based on the approved MCS calculation tool MIS3005 over a 12 month period.

Ecodan running costs

Space Heating £655.00
Hot Water £230.00
Immersion £25.00

Annual running costs


Annual Carbon Emissions


RHI claim on the estimated renewable energy would be in the region of 12792kWh @ 0.73p/kWh = £933.81 per year for 7 years. Heat meters were installed allowing the end user further grants from DECC (department for energy and climate change) of £230/year for 7 years.
